We are excited to share our latest release R8.4 that delivers OneDrive for Business into Microsoft Outlook and OnePlaceDocs, available on desktop, as requested by our customers. Native support is now accessible to all users – further driving quick and simple collaboration within your teams.
Improve business workflow with native integration to OneDrive
R8.4 enables you and your team to be more productive with modern document management, by delivering access to OneDrive from your desktop and directly from Outlook. This brings all Microsoft 365 locations together in a single user experience. Leveraging the power of OnePlace Solutions, users can take advantage of an intuitive navigation tree, filtering locations and add these locations to their favorites saving both time and effort – allowing you to get back to work quickly. Given your teams already use Outlook this additional functionality is intuitive to users and facilitates fast adoption. The simpleness and ease of being able to save to OneDrive enables employees to use the functionality, in turn discouraging them from saving to personal desktop folder locations.
SharePoint folders and document sets are now visible in the content grid view. Take advantage of created views and refine folders or document sets to display to users. Users will now be able to select custom views to group document sets and also filter out items based on metadata, reducing the time and frustration of having to click down the folder structure to find the content they want to work with quickly.
Simplify access to SharePoint folders & document sets with visibility in the content grid
R8.4 additionally delivers the ability to rename files as well as SharePoint folders and document sets. This enhances the document management options available for the team and reduces context shifting by removing the need to switch to the browser to complete simple tasks.
You can now copy items from one location to another in SharePoint and OneDrive, previously you could only move items. This will be useful if an individual wants to keep a copy of the original item for their personal records, for teams it is a big timesaver to copy templates of frequently used items such as briefing documents or PowerPoint templates that can be used as a starting point for a new document, without changing the original that will be used for future projects.
Further productivity is enabled with the ability to edit metadata in bulk in OnePlaceMail, allowing you to perform multiple changes in a couple of clicks. Previously this timesaving feature was only available in OnePlaceDocs.
